Acerca de


Based on the classic syllabus of Kyuzo Mifune, the highest ranked master in Kodokan judo, this text presents the fundamental techniques of judo, along with the history and structure of international judo, ranking systems, and adult and youth grade requirements. The International Judo Federation Contest Rules and a full instruction programme on the basic elements are also included.

About the Author:

Patricia Harrington, born and educated in Australia, is ranked 6th dan in Kodokan judo, the highest graded Caucasian female in the world. She has received all of her dan ranks from the Kodokan Institute of Judo, ratified by the International Judo Federation. She has taught martial arts professionally since 1965. She is the author (with Betty Huxley) of Judo: A Pictorial Manual.

Kyuzo Mifune (1883-1965) joined the Kodokan in 1903 when he came to Tokyo to enter Waseda University. He was not physically imposing (159 cm. tall and 56 kg.), but he made up for that with his logical, scientific approach to judo. He developed many new techniques, such as the kuki-nage (now called sumi-otoshi) and tama-guruma (now o-guruma), and strengthened the rational foundations of judo. He taught at Tokyo, Waseda, Meiji, and other universities, and in 1920 was awarded the rank of 10th dan. Called the "god of judo," he was so famous that, in referring to him, the words "10th dan" alone sufficed. Legend has it that in his sixty years as a judoka he never lost a match and was never thrown.

Keiko Fukuda, grand-daughter of Hachinosuke Fukuda, Jigoro Kano's first jujutsu teacher, is ranked 9th dan USJF and serves as the USA Kata Technical Advisor. In 1990 she received the Order of the Sacred Treasure, Gold Rays with Rosette, from the Japanese Government for her contributions to the world of judo.

Hayward H. Nishioka, 8th dan and former USA Judo World Team Member, is an International Judo Federation "A" Level Referee and USA Judo "A" Level Coach. He holds the position of Professor of Physical Education at Los Angeles City College and is Chairperson, National Teachers Institute, United States Judo Federation. He is the author of Judo: Heart and Soul and Foot Throws: Karate, Judo, and Self-Defense, coauthor of Judo Textbook: In Practical Application, and has produced over 50 judo videos.
